America

The band came together shortly after the members' graduation from high school, and a record deal with Warner Bros. Records followed. Their debut, a 1971 self-titled album, produced the transatlantic hits "A Horse with No Name" and "I Need You". Homecoming (1972) produced the single "Ventura Highway", and preceded Hat Trick (1973), which fared poorly on the charts. 1974's Holiday featured the hits "Tin Man" and "Lonely People", and 1975's Hearts generated the number one single "Sister Golden Hair", alongside "Daisy Jane". History: America's Greatest Hits, a compilation of singles, was released the same year and was certified multi-platinum in the United States and Australia. Peek left the group in 1977 and their commercial fortunes declined, despite a brief return to the top in 1982 with the single "You Can Do Magic".

Four decades into their career, the group continues to record material and tour with regularity. Their 2007 album Here & Now was a collaboration with a new generation of musicians who credited the band as an influence. America has been inducted into the Vocal Group Hall of Fame and has received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
